"There’s obviously going to be a lot of questions about this individual being a foreign national, being a part of the Saudi Air Force and then to be here training on our soil and to do this," he said.

MADISON -clark-county Gov. Tony Evers announced Tuesday his appointment of Melissa Inlow to serve as Clark County District Attorney.

“Melissa Inlow has a deep commitment to justice and a long history of service to her community. She possesses great strength and great compassion, a perfect combination for a successful district attorney. Her experience and dedication will serve Clark County well,” said Gov. Evers.

tony-evers“I was pleased to learn of Melissa Inlow’s appointment as the District Attorney for Clark County,” said former Clark County District Attorney Kerra Stumbris. “She is an experienced and dedicated prosecutor, who is well-regarded both personally and professionally.

Bill Will Boost Wisconsin Businesses PDF Print E-mail

wedc-wallsignNew state website seeks to provide a one-stop shop for start-up assistance.

MADISON, WI – In an effort to boost main-street businesses and small family start-ups, Senator Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) and Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) are introducing LRB-2980 that would establish a one-stop shop state website that will publish relevant information for small businesses.

On the portal, business owners will be able to access information on bidding opportunities, economic development programs, educational and networking opportunities, licensing or permit requirements, and financial information associated with their businesses.

jennifer-shilling“The Driftless Region is fortunate to have an abundance of innovative entrepreneurs and unique small businesses that make our area a popular destination for bringing locals and visitors together,” said Senator Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse). “These main-street businesses and small family start-ups are the backbone of our communities and play a critical role in our local economy. This legislation will support small business development and help local entrepreneurs successfully turn their dreams into a reality.”

Currently, many state agencies work to help small businesses in different ways. However, much of this information is disconnected, and the effort is not coordinated to best fit the business owner’s needs. This bill requires all the agencies to work together and merge information to an easy to use one-stop shop website. According to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, downtown district businesses account for 14 percent of total retail sales and 22 percent of restaurant sales in Wisconsin main-street communities. Despite the success of these main-street businesses, Wisconsin has struggled to keep up nationally with small business creation and growth.

Evers on Oshkosh West Shooting PDF Print E-mail

sandy-hook-motherGovernor says we can’t just accept that violence in our schools is a foregone conclusion, and we have to get to work to keep our kids and communities safe.

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers issued the following statement Monday on the shooting at Oshkosh West High School:

tony-evers-kathy“What happened in Oshkosh today hits especially close to home for Kathy and I—two of our kids graduated from Oshkosh West when our family lived in Oshkosh, and our hearts go out to all of the folks at Oshkosh West and the Oshkosh community as they grapple with today’s events.

It’s impossible to ignore the fact that in addition to today’s officer-involved shooting at Oshkosh West, the Sparta School District is closed due to security threats, and that this happened just a day after we had another school shooting at Waukesha South. I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again today—no kid should be afraid to go to school or be in the classroom, and no parent should be afraid to send their kid to school, either. The last two days tells us that we can’t keep pretending that this only happens in other communities or in other states—it’s happening here, too. We can’t just accept that violence in our schools is a foregone conclusion, and we have to get to work to do everything we can to keep our kids and our communities safe.”
